On Monday I posted a back-to-campus look centered on a pineapple tee. Today I want to focus on that same tee but this time give it a dressier vibe to demonstrate just how versatile a statement tee like this can be.
The tininess of this pineapple print ensures sophistication while still staying fun and trendy. It's all about those subtle details.
This top, and ones similar to it, can take you from hitting the books to hitting the town. All you need for an effortless transition is a quick accessory switch-up!
Start by adding some feminine charm with layers of pearls; they instantly provide polish.
To dress up a versatile tee for a night on the town, a skirt is a must. I love this one because of the sheer paneling at the hem and its subtle pleats and stripes. It's those minimal details that transform a simple black skirt into an envy-worthy piece fit for your nicest occasions.
Sleek black heels are a staple in any wardrobe. The style of the season is the ankle-strap look. Peep-toe heels and booties are definitely having a moment as well.
I threw on this yellow bangle for a pop of color. I like how it ties in with my pineapple theme.
These sparkly emerald studs compliment the entire look. They pull each piece together with a bold flash of color.

When I'm back-to-school shopping I like to purchase pieces that easily transition from the classroom to the office, even to a nighttime event. This pineapple tee is a great choice for any of the above venues - all I have to do is switch up my accessories and BAM - a whole new look!
After my first week of classes I'm more than ready to take this fun print for a spin in a different setting; I can't think of a better atmosphere than a classy outdoor concert at sunset.
